Life Drawing

I've just attempted to tidy my room, and instead ended up trawling through some old drawings and scanning them in. Here are a couple of sketches from a life drawing class in late 2007.

Kuniyoshi - behind the scenes

Friday, 19 June 2009


Having really enjoyed the Kuniyoshi exhibition at the Royal Academy (which ended a couple of weeks ago) and also having promised myself for some time that I'd have a go at using watercolours (rather than Photoshop), I decided to have a go at copying a Kuniyoshi print and then ruining it with watercolours. Results (badly photographed, just to make things worse), below:

Some experimentation in Illustrator last year that I'd forgotten about. I can't find the original files, only printouts that were buried in a folder I was looking through yesterday. I drew the bare tree image, and then played around with Illustrator's brushes by creating different leaf images and setting the colours to vary as I painted with them.

I've photoshopped these images to clean them up a bit post-scanning, but quite liked the paper image of the second one, so I've left that relatively untouched.
